We use the Bible in a variety of ways for a number of different purposes (read Eugene Peterson’s excellent Eat This Book for more on this idea). So how would a specifically missional approach to the Bible impact different areas of the life of the people of God?

I’ve blogged a lot on how a missional approach to the Bible impacts interpreting the Bible in general. But what about when it comes down to the activities you and I are involved in on a day to day basis?

How might a missional approach to the Bible impact how we preach on a Sunday morning?

How might a missional approach to the Bible impact how we study the Bible together at a mid-week home group?

How might a missional approach to the Bible impact how we do evangelism?

How might a missional approach to the Bible impact how we read the Bible devotionally?

How might a missional approach to the Bible impact how and when we go to the Bible when we are wrestling with the frustrations and pain of living in this broken world?

So, what would all this look like? How do you see this approach working its way into your own contexts? Would it make a difference?
